Campus Life 



Self portraits. 
For one reason or 
another, they 
seem to have be- 
come a tradition in 
the Chestnut Burr. 

Self portraits al- 
low the students 
of Kent State to 
put their own style 
into the yearbook 
without any real 
advanced plan- 
ning or worl<. It 
just happens. 

The plot is sim- 
ple. Place a cam- 
era on a tripod in a 
conspicuous spot 
on campus — in 
this instance, at 
the Student Cen- 
ter — plead with 
the passersby to 
take their own pic- 
ture, of course as- 
suring them that it is absolutely free 

Voila — magic.

Orientation Week is hectic for everyone — students, 
advisors, and campus employees alil<e. It's the time 
for students to get used to new rooms and new 
roommates. A time to pore over the campus map 
again and again, memorizing all the buildings. It's the time 
when the high school senior becomes the college freshman. 
During Orientation Week, freshmen students learn all the 
fundamentals for surviving at KSU. Through assigned 
groups, each with their own faculty advisor, they are taught 
how to decipher registration forms, instructed which classes 
to take and which teachers to avoid, and given the campus 
tour no less than fifteen times. 

Recreational activities are also part of Orientation Week. 
Each student group is assigned a time in which they partici- 
pate in group sports. The City of Kent becomes part of the act 
with its annual sidewalk sale involving area merchants. 

As for nightlife, the Rathskeller probably gets more busi- 
ness during Orientation Week than any other time of year. 
The pizza delivery people run themselves ragged filling the 
orders of ravenous freshmen to whom cheap, cardboard-like 
pizza is a novelty. And Downtown, at least for those of legal 
age, becomes a nightly visiting spot. 

Scheduling classes is one of the more trying aspects of 
Orientation Week. Freshmen are presented with a catalog, 
schedule book, and a foreign-looking computer form. Given 
this, they attempt to construct a schedule that fulfills all of 
their General Education Requirements, puts them at junior 
standing and lets them sleep in until noon every day; an 
admirable, yet somewhat unrealistic goal. 

But after the scheduling hassles are over and students 
have spent their every last cent on junk food and alcohol, 
most everyone settles down and prepares for the onslaught 
of upperclassmen. Soon the campus will be crawling with 
people of all ages and backgrounds. Another year has be- 
gun! ■

The transition to uni- 
versity life is a big step 
for most people. New 
faces, new places and 
a new lifestyle are just 
a part of what con- 
fronts freshmen when 
they come to KSU.

Dorm Life 

Pictures, above and upper right, by Jim Fossett 

College lifestyles offer the best of times 
and the worst of times — late night chats, 
late night spats, friends for life and social 
strife. On- and off-campus living, say stu- 
dents who have experienced both, sup- 
plies all of the above and quite a bit more. 

"I wanted a place of my own, privacy, 
responsibility, no quiet hours, no RAs and 
real food" is the consensus of students 
who chose to leave the dorms after their 
required two-year stay. 

Sue Stepanic, senior bio-chem major 

and resident of Glen Morris Apartments, 
said the greatest problem in the dorms 
was the lack of privacy. "I needed time to 
be alone, and in a dorm room there is no 
place to go except your top bunk or a bath- 
room stall. In an apartment, there are at 
least three other rooms that might be emp- 
ty and can be called 'home.' " 

Manchester Resident Adviser (RA) Tony 
Siekman said the major complaint of dorm 
dwellers is abiding by the policies, fol- 
lowed closely by noise level restraints. 

Senior public relations major Eric 
Vaughn spent two years in McSweeney 
Hall, where most partying was reserved 
for weekends. He said it was relatively qui- 
et until Residence Services experimented 
with putting "rowdies" there to control 
their unruly behavior. 

Dorm life can also mean a no-win battle 
against clutter and mess. Mary Beth Ra- 
dik, a senior bio-chem major, said, "It's 
bad enough that three or four girls and all 


their worldly possessions are crammed 
into one room. But even when we tried to 
keep things neat, one thing out of place — 
one unmade bed or one or two guests — 
made it totally impossible." 

On the positive side, dorm life means no 
utility bills (a real budget-buster), no 
monthly rent checks, no grocery shopping 
(except for goodies), no sink, toilet (how 
gross) or shower scrubbing, no trips to the 
laundromat and never having to be alone. 
In addition, most agree that at least one 
year in the dorms has real merits: making 
new friends, sharing a common, some- 
times frightening experience, and some 
semblance of regulation. 

"When you're new to college life, it's 
best to meet as many people as possible, 
make a lot of friends, and get involved," 
Radik said. "It's easy in the dorms be- 
cause you're all in the same situation. 
Some of my best friends in off-campus life 
I met while living in Fletcher." 

"Frustration and anxiety run high and 
it's nice to know you're surrounded by 
people who understand," Lang added. 

Vaughn also felt dorm life was a positive 
influence for freshmen. "It's a good idea to 
have students live in the dorms for their 
first year," he said. "The structured rou- 
tine might just save them from dropping 

Vaughn said the dorms were more struc- 
turally sound, built particularly for the 
"race of destructive students." 

"Living in a dorm, you will rarely encoun- 
ter leaky ceilings, weeds growing through 
your living room floor or pestering land-

lords. These novelties are commonplace 
in many homes and apartments. Dorms 
were built to withstand misuse — apart- 
ments weren't," he said. 

Although the required purchase of food 
coupons assures that students will have a 
semester full of nourishment, for some 
students Food Service entrees leave a lot 
to be desired. 

According to Vaughn, it is possible to 
get out of buying the food plan "if you have 
a doctor's written word — in blood, prefer- 
ably his — that you'll die if you continue to 
eat campus food." One student escaped 
the food plan on the basis of salt content. 
One alternative to cafeteria eating is using 

coupons in the Deli at Eastway Center." 
And upperclassmen who remain on cam- 
pus can forego the coupon system alto- 

"I like food prepared by someone who 
cares: me," Debbie Lesseur, a senior edu- 
cation major said. If food is a primary com- 
plaint for dorm dwellers, it's an asset for 
house and apartment residents. The has- 
sles of shopping, preparation and cleanup 
don't seem to detract from the joy of being 
able to eat with freedom. 

Responsibility is the greatest thing 
about off-campus living according to Ra- 
dik. Rather than dreading it, she welcomed 
the opportunity to be responsible for "all

my own actions: cooking, cleaning, study- 
ing and partying." 

But not everything about off-campus liv- 
ing is quite so enjoyable, for instance, trips 
to remote garbage areas, fighting with un- 
cooperative toilet floats and toting bun- 
dles of laundry. 

Vaughn has developed an intense dis- 
like for the trash detail. "Dumpsters are 
usually located in the most inhospitable 
area of apartment properties, and make 
for inconvenient, if not spine-tingling 
strolls in your robe and slippers on dark, 
drizzly nights," he said. 

While the female dwellers said cleaning 
was no problem because things still look 
good even with a little clutter, Vaughn 
misses the services of the University 
Housekeeping battalion. "Now I have to 
scrub the shower and sink, replace light- 
bulbs, sweep dust under the rug, and fix 
the toilet every time the float jams open," 
he said. 

Both dorms and off-campus housing 
have their good and bad points. Dorms can 
provide limited responsibility and the best 
opportunity for making friends, but they 
can also offer the worst in overcrowding, 
restrictions, and food. Off-campus hous- 
ing, however, means more freedom and re- 
sponsibility, but also includes barren bud- 
geting and "slumlords." The choice is

Off-campus living can have its hazards — dishpan hands, 
for example, but, a barbecued steak and a nice hammock 
make the pain worthwhile.

The Greek system at Kent State, comprised of 13 
fraternities and eight sororities, experienced much suc- 
cess during the 1 984-85 year. Improvements occurred in 
every area of Greel< life, especially in the social aspect. 

Besides an apparent increase in the number of soror- 
ity functions, fraternities opened their doors more often 
than in past years in order to host all-campus parties. 
Heading downtow/n remained a popular pastime with 
Greeks, this year penetrating the doors of McNasty's 
and making it the Greek "hangout." Thursday nights at 
Filthy's became a ritual. Fraternities and sororities, 
wearing their colors, could be found in full force, show- 
ing the students of KSU how to have a good time. 

The Inter-Greek Programming Board sponsored a 
"Slash Party" for incoming freshmen, and a welcome 
dance for the campus during Orientation Week. Several 
Monday Night Football get-togethers were held in the 
Rathskeller, and all-campus Trivial Pursuit game took 
place in November. 

Fall rush proved successful for both fraternities and 
sororities. The five sororities in the Panhellenic Council 
accepted over seventy pledges, while the IFC fraterni- 
ties picked up nearly sixty pledges. The fall rush had 
more people go through the houses than ever before. 
Some chapters even doubled in size. 

Besides the large rush, another sign of growth was 
cited. Three national fraternities expressed their inter- 
est in colonizing at Kent State by the end of the fall 
semester, an encouraging sign to a small Greek system. 

Philanthropy projects thrived during the year. The 
Greeks worked their way to giving nearly $10,000 to 
charitable organizations. A "bed push" project allowed 
the IFC to present $1500 to the Ronald McDonald 
House in Cleveland. 

Greek Week 1984 was held in April. The schedule of 
events included a songfest, swim meet, the Greek god- 
dess contest, and Greek games. Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
fraternity and Delta Gamma sorority emerged as victors 
at the end of the activity-filled week.

Anew chapter of Greek Life was created 
this fall at KSU. All Greeks Together 
was formed in the fall under the direc- 
tion of Erica Levine. The unique group's 
membership is made up of Greeks who trans- 
ferred to Kent from another school to find that 
their fraternity or sorority was not represented, 
or who were members of a Greek organization 
that left Kent State. 

Although All Greeks Together is not permitted 
to be a member of the Inter fraternity Council or 
the Panhellenic Council, the group has been ac- 
cepted as a member chapter of the Inter-Greek 
Programming Board, so they can vote on issues 
and will participate in Greek Week activities in 
the spring of each year. The group is not al- 
lowed to "rush" for membership, since they can 
only acquire people who are already part of the 
Greek system. 

Fall, 1 984 was a busy time for the members of 
the Inter fraternity Council. It has been reorga- 
nizing and rebuilding this semester, and as a 
result the constitution, bylaws and Judicial 
Board Constitution have all been totally revised. 
The Pledge Council of the IPC has been re- 
vamped, and is expected to be completely set 
up by the end of the spring semester. 

The IPC sponsored an awards ceremony in 
the fall to honor those who demonstrated high 
academic achievement in the past spring term. 
Certificates were given for appearing on the 
dean's list, and certain chapters were recog- 
nized for their efforts as a whole.

Theta Chi won top honors for obtaining the 
highest GPA as a chapter, and also tool< the 
award for having the pledge class with the high- 
est GPA. Sigma Alpha Epsilon had the most 
improved grade point average. 

Greek Life is an important part of Kent State 
for many people. Fraternities and sororities are 
a way of meeting new people and getting in- 
volved in the University, and Greeks share 
friendships that will last throughout their lives.

Fundraising, recreation and rituals are all part of Greek life

Changes and new developments are an integral 
part of any college campus, but they play an espe- 
cially important role at Kent State. 
The amount of renovation on campus, both 
planned and in progress, is considerable, and 
promises to vastly improve KSU's reputation throughout the 

Perhaps the most dramatic addition to the campus is the 
creation of the School of Fashion Design and the Kent State 
Museum. In order to house the school, Rockwell Hall has 
been completely redesigned. The $3.8 million project began 
in January 1984, and is expected to be completed by spring. 
Two valuable collections from the Metropolitan Museum of 
Art were donated to the school by fashion moguls Shannon 
Rodgers and the late Jerry Silverman: La Belle Epoque and 
the Manchu Dragon Robe collection. The Manchu Dragon 
exhibit consists of various antique furniture, rugs and cloth- 
ing, and also includes twenty robes valued at $20,000 each. 
Stella Blum, formerly employed by the Metropolitan Muse- 
um of Art, was hired as the director of the Kent State Muse- 
um. The school and museum are designed to include addi- 
tional exhibition space and a 150-seat auditorium for lec- 
tures. The school is also being planned as a future site for 
area style shows. 

The development of the School of Fashion Design is a 
landmark addition to the Kent State campus, and will provide 
an entirely new facet to its already extensive academic op- 

Another major development on campus is the complete 
renovation of the University School. The extent of this re- 
modeling will depend on the amount of funds allocated by the 
state for this purpose. However, the administration is opti- 
mistic, and an entire refurbishing program has been de- 
signed, scheduled to begin this summer and be completed by 

The goal of the University School project is to create a total 
student service center. The school will house all offices that 
pertain to student registration, such as Financial Aids, Bur- 
sar, Parking and Traffic, Orientation, and Disabled Student 
Services. This consolidation will be beneficial in many ways. 
First, it will provide the necessary space in Rockwell Hall for 
the School of Fashion Design. Additionally, by keeping the 
offices in one building, it will not only increase administrative 
efficiency but also aid students in the previously time-con- 
suming registration process. 

The University Library is yet another target for re-design- 
ing. During the summer of 1983 many of the administrative 


offices were moved there from Rockwell Hall. Beginning in 
January of 1984, the computer center at Rockwell was also 
transferred to the library. This move was implimented in order 
to put ail the computers in the "heart" of the campus, joining 
them with the CAI Self-lnstructin computers already located 

A $4 million science lab is being constructed near the nurs- 
ing building. The lab, to be finished in spring of 1986, will be 
used by the Liquid Crystal Institute and the biology, chemistry 
and physics departments. 

In addition to the restoration of the campus buildings them- 
selves, the University's power sources and automation sys- 
tem are also being updated. In order to conserve energy and 
therefore save the students money, the heating plant is now 
upgrading its boilers, installing new lighting, and developing a 
new coal and ash handling process. The administration's 
goal is to be flexible in choosing its fuel source. This adapt- 
ability will keep the university from being continually forced to 

buy one particular fuel, saving hundreds of dollars. 

Numerous other renovation projects have sprung up 
around campus. Mcgilvrey Hall is being completely remod- 
eled, and Taylor Hall, with emphasis on the Daily Kent Stater 
office, was furnished with new mechanical equipment and 
lighting. The Wills Gym building was converted in the fall to 
house the ROTC program, previously located in Rockwell 
Hall. Renovation of the Memorial Gym is also in progress, 
including bold, modern graphics and a new gymnasium floor. 

An all-weather running track, installed behind the Health 
Center, will be ready for use by athletic teams, faculty and 
students sometime in the spring. A cross-campus jogging 
path, complete with "fitness stations," is also in progress. 

Kent State's campus is constantly changing, and the ex- 
tensive amount of construction projects lends an air of mod- 
ernization and progress to the University.

Kent has come a long 
way since it was 
founded in 1 910 as the 
Kent Normal School. 
Above, Kent Normal 
campus shortly after 
construction in 1915,

A lot can happen in 75 years. 

Three-quarters of a century is a 
long time — for some people, it's 
more than a lifetime. For Kent 
State, though, 75 years seems to 
have been just a start. The Univer- 
sity is celebrating its 75th anniver- 
sary with an enrollment of 20,000, 
its highest in eight years, and with 
its first construction in 14 years, 
adding to the 66 existing buildings. 

Obviously change has been 
quick and constant since the Kent 
Normal School was created by the 
Ohio Legislature in 1910. Classes, 
which led to a two-year degree for 
elementary teachers, did not begin 
until May, 1913. During the 1913- 
14 academic year, 21 instructors 
taught a total of 144 students, 
many of whom were already 
teachers seeking formal accredi- 

Although room and board cost 
four dollars per week, tuition was 
free, due to the wishes of the 
school's first president, John 
McGilvrey. Altogether the first 12- 
week session cost a student less 
than $60, including room and 
board, laundry and books. 

Four buildings: Merrill, Lowry, 
Kent and the Administration Build- 
ing, constituted the entire campus. 
Lowry, originally named Walden 
Hall by its residents, served as a 
women's residence hall until 1968. 
Stopher, the first men's hall, 
wasn't built until 1948. By 1926, 
five more buildings had been con- 
structed: Moulton and Franklin 
halls, the power plant, Wills Gym- 
nasium and Rockwell Hall. Moul- 
ton was another women's dorm, 
and Rockwell served as the library. 


Except for the years during World 
War I, Kent's enrollment grew each 
year, although the women on campus 
consistently outnumbered the men. 
During the first year, there weren't even 
enough men on campus to field a foot- 
ball team. 

Athletics were one of the first major 

hurdles faced by Kent Normal School. 
January 1915 witnessed Kent's first in- 
tercollegiate basketball game against 
Otterbein. The Kent Silver Foxes, 
named for President McGilvrey's fox 
farm, lost that first contest with a de- 
pressing score of 56-5. 

When a football team was finally 
formed in 1920, Kent's team fared even 
worse. Three winless and scoreless 
seasons passed before Kent scored a 
touchdown in a 1923 game. A victory 
was finally chalked up in November 

1 925, at Kent's 7-6 defeat of West Liber- 
ty (West Va.) College. 

Despite Kent's dismal athletic record, 
school spirits continually ran high. Cam- 
pus Day, an open house-like affair be- 
gun by President McGilvrey, was a fes- 
tive highlight of the year. Because of the 
school's small size, most all of the stu- 
dents were familiar with each other, 
with the faculty members and even with 
President McGilvrey. Literary, outdoor 
and social clubs abounded on campus 
and the first fraternity. Kappa Mu 
Kappa, was founded in 1922. By 1925, 

If > t'-Ki k 
another fraternity and seven sororities 
were established. Despite McGilvrey's 
initial resistance, the Greeks became a 
major force on campus which was to be 
encouraged throughout the succeeding 
Just as social activities grew on cam- 

pus, Kent's academic life also grew in 
size and responsibility. In 1915 the 
Board of Trustees voted to change the 
school's name to Kent State Normal 
College, a change which the Ohio Legis- 
lature formalized in 1928 when the as- 

sembly changed the name to Kent State 
College. The board effected another im- 
portant change in 1926 when they 
picked David Anderson to replace 
McGilvrey as president. 

This change in name and leadership 
signalled an even greater change in di- 
rection. From its very beginning, Kent 
has served as a training school for 
teachers. Out of the 30 credits originally 
offered, only nine did not deal directly 
with education. During his two-year 
term as president, Anderson expanded 
the curriculum to include more profes- 
sional and advanced courses, and he 
also strengthened the faculty by hiring 
better qualified instructors. In 1929 the 
first liberal arts class. Elementary Latin, 
was offered. Other liberal arts classes, 
including philosophy and psychology.

were gradually added. 

Before these classes were offered, 
however, James Engleman became 
Kent's third president. His term, which 
lasted from 1928 to 1938, witnessed an 
even greater expansion of curriculum. 
The College of Liberal Arts added such 
departments as journalism, economics 
and political science, and in 1936 the 
College of Business Administration was 
created. As a testimony to this expan- 
sion, the Ohio Legislature changed 
Kent's name to Kent State University in 

Despite the Depression, enrollment 
grew during President Engleman's ad- 
ministration. In 1929 Kent students 
numbered 832, the largest enrollment 
ever. By the fall of 1937, this number 
had more than doubled. Lack of jobs 
caused many high school graduates to 
go on to college. With the lowest fees in 
the state, Kent was a natural choice. 


An early advertise- 
ment for the Kent Nor- 
mal School stressed 
the free tuition that the 
school offered teach- 
ers in the early years 
of the institution. Be- 
cause of the United 
States involvement in 
the first World War, 
male enrollment be- 
came virtually nonex- 


Engleman's term also witnessed the 
first mass demonstration at Kent State, in 
protest against a national war prepared- 
ness program, 1200 students marched 
across campus waving banners reading 
"No more war!" 

By the time Karl Leebrick became presi- 
dent in 1938, 128 professors in 23 depart- 
ments were teaching at Kent. President 
Leebrick brought a great many changes to 
Kent State, including the official division of 
the 23 departments into their specific col- 
leges. Until this time several of the courses 
and departments had been the joint re- 
sponsibility of two of the colleges, which 
often led to confusion. Leebrick further cut 
academic confusion by permanently rel- 
egating the College of Education to a less 
dominant role, finally allowing the colleges 
of liberal arts and business administration 
to gain equal status. Once and for all, Kent 
State broke away from its normal school 
roots to become a well-rounded, complete 

Although the Depression had stopped 
all of Engleman's construction programs. 
President Leebrick pushed through sever- 
al new projects, using New Deal funds for 
some of them. Engleman Hall, the third 
women's dorm, was finished in 1938 as 
was McGilvrey Hall. Further construction 
was halted by World War II.

James McGilvrey, first 
president of the Uni- 
versity, was laughed at 
when he presented his 
fifty year plan for the 
Kent State University. 
By 1960, McGllvrey's 
plan had come to 
pass. The plan, left, 
turned out to be a con- 
servative estimate of 
Kent State's growth in 
the next five decades.

Franklin hall by 
McGilvrey after a dis- 
agreement between 
the University presi- 
dent and Cluff. Al- 
though the building 
was renamed, Cluff's 
named is still en- 
graved over the en- 
trance to the hall.

years of the Kent Nor-

and ice skating spot in 
the winter, was locat-

War, of course, brought great 
changes to the university. By Spring, 
1944 enrollment fell from a 1940 high 
of 2707 to a mere 696 students. A full 
30 per cent of the faculty left to help 
with the war effort, either by joining 
the military or entering war-related 

Helping to compensate for the loss 
of civilian students, 500 aircrewmen 
from the 336th College Training De- 
tachment arrived on campus in 1943. 
The Kent State airport was pur- 
chased to aid in their training. The 
men attended classes on campus 
and lived in Lowry Hall, even though 
they weren't formally registered with 
the University. 

Another addition was made to the 
University in 1944 when George 
Bowman was selected to become 
president. In contrast to the war 
years. Bowman's administration wit- 
nessed an incredible jump in enroll- 
ment. Through the Gl Bill thousands 
of World War II veterans were able to 
return to college after the war ended. 
By the spring of 1946, Kent's enroll- 
ment had risen to over 2000 stu- 
dents, about 1 000 of whom were vet- 
erans. In the fall of 1949, 2500 veter- 
ans boosted Kent's number to over 
6000 students. The veterans that 
year alone outnumbered the entire 
1940 student body. 



To cope with this amazing increase 
ten pre-fabricated buildings were ac- 
quired from federal agencies in 1946. 
Five of these were set up as dorms 
on the present site of Terrace Hall. 
The other five were erected behind 
the power plant. Two of these plus 
one purchased in 1948 served as 
classrooms. Two others were used 
as a warehouse and a men's cafete- 
ria while the last one served first as 
the temporary student union or 
"Hub" and later became the military 
science building. Although these 
buildings were only meant as tempo- 
rary measures, at least one remained 
in use until 1970. 

Construction of permanent build- 
ings resumed in 1947. By 1951 six 
buildings had been erected: a health 
center, which now serves as the cam- 
pus police office; the Kent Student 
Union, now Oscar Ritchie Hall; 
Stopher Hall, the first men's dormi- 
tory; Van Deusen Hall; Memorial 
Gymnasium and a football stadium, 
located on the site of the present Stu- 
dent Center oarkina lot. 



Above, Homecoming, 
1934. Following a na- 
tional craze, Kent 
State began to accept 
football in the 1920's. 
Kent's first football 
team, the Silver Foxes, 
formed in 1920, but 
never scored a touch- 
down until 1923. The 
team won their first 
game in November of 
1925, snapping the 
school's first, and 
longest, losing streak.

Over the next nine years six addi- 
tional buildings were constructed. 
Built in 1956, the University School 
was considered an important addi- 
tion to the University because of its 
use as a nnodern training lab for edu- 
cation majors. The remaining five 
buildings were dorms: Dunbar, John- 
son, Prentice, Terrace and Verder. 

Not only did the tremendous in- 
crease in enrollment spark the new 
construction program, but the de- 
mands of a larger and more varied 
student body created a need for a 
more extensive selection of classes. 
By 1959 six new departments had 
been developed and an entirely new 
college. Fine and Professional Arts, 
had been established. Seven schools 
from the College of Arts and Sci- 
ences were incorporated into the 
new college. 

In recognition of this vast increase 
in academic volume and value, the 
State Assembly voted in 1959 to al- 
low Kent State to confer the doctor- 
ate and any other degree seen as fit- 
ting and necessary. Kent State had 
finally achieved full university rank, in 
its own eyes and in the eyes of the 




The construction which began after 
World War II continued at an even great- 
er pace through the 1960s. Between 
1960 and 1969, 33 buildings were con- 
structed on campus. Twenty-three of 
these were dorms, including Eastway 
Complex, Lake, Olson and Korb halls, 
and Small Group. Allerton Apartments 
were also built at this time. 

With the exception of the University 
Supply Center, all of the other buildings 
were academically oriented. Along with 
Taylor and Nixson halls, Music and 
Speech, the first building constructed in 
1960, gave the infant Fine and Profes- 
sional Arts College a real, physical pres- 
ence. The other buildings inlcuded Bow- 
man, Satterfield and White halls. 

Although 33 buildings in ten years 
seems to be an incredible figure, stu- 
dent enrollment swelled to more than fill 
the buildings. In 1959, over 7500 stu- 
dents attended classes on campus. 
Within five years enrollment nearly dou- 
bled. Classroom space was in such de- 
mand that temporary classrooms were 
set up in dorms until White Hall and oth- 
er buildings were completed. 

After World War II, 
Kent State saw one of 
the quickest growth 
periods In Its history. 
Male students, like the 
ones pictured above, 
were often unable to 
find living space on or 
near campus. Right, 
the Memorial Gym is 
transformed Into an 
Army barracks. 

Prentice hall, along 
with Dunbar, were built 
in 1 959 to keep up with 
the increasing post- 
war enrollment. Both 
halls were named after 
early female faculty 




With the coming of the 
1 960's, Kent saw some 
of the swiftest 
changes in its history, 
as did the rest of the 
nation. Dissent turned 
to tragedy on the KSU 
campus on May 4, 
1970, writing one of 
the darkest chapters 
in the Kent State histo- 
ry books. Right, the 
construction of Tri 
Towers in 1967. 

Built in 1966, White Hall 
was not formally named 
until after the 1971 retire- 
ment of the University's 
seventh president, Robert 
White. A major force be- 
hind the construction pro- 
gram. White replaced 
Bowman in 1963. During 
his administration 30 
buildings were either com- 
pleted or begun. These in- 
cluded Dix Stadium, the 
Ice Arena and the highly 
acclaimed Student Center 
and University Library 

Despite the emphasis 
on physical facilities, aca- 
demics were not ignored. 
The first three doctorates 
were granted in 1964, and 
in 1965 the Honors Pro- 
gram was upgraded to the 
Honors College. 1965 also 
marked the birth of the 
Liquid Crystal Institute, 
now a nationally recog- 
nized research center. A 
year later, the School of 
Nursing was created. 
These advances helped to 
establish Kent State as a 
mature center of learning. 

During this period social 
changes were also leaving 
their mark nationwide. Al- 
though it was never a hot- 
bed of radicalism, Kent 
State, like most other 
campuses across the na- 
tion, had its share of stu- 
dent demonstrations 
throughout the late 1960s. 
These demonstrations 
ended abruptly on May 4, 
1970 when Ohio National 
Guardsmen wounded nine 
students and killed four 

The Guardsmen had 
been called to Kent State 
in response to a series of 
anti-war demonstrations 
during the first three days 
of May which had resulted 
in some damage to both 
public and private proper- 
ty. Although the cause of 
the shootings may never 
be completely under- 
stood, the incident has left 
an indelible mark on the 
University, both in the na- 
tion's attitude toward Kent 
State and in the many me- 
morials on campus. 

One immediate and visi- 

ble effect of the shootings 
was the resignation of 
President White in 1971 
and his replacement by 
Glenn Olds. Olds, too, re- 
signed in a storm of con- 
troversy in 1977. Cen- 
sured by a 1976 Faculty 
Senate poll and highly 
criticized for his tough 
austerity program. Olds 
faced his greatest chal- 
lenge in 1977 during the 
protest over the Memorial 
Gym Annex. Demonstra- 
tors charged that the an- 
nex, which stands near 
the sight of the 1970 
shootings, was an insult to 
the memory of the stu- 
dents killed and wounded 
on May 4. 

Despite these protests. 
Olds ordered the con- 
struction to begin and the 
Annex was completed in 
1979. Other structures 
built during the Olds ad- 
ministration included the 
Art Building and the Busi- 
ness Administration Build- 

A decline in enrollment during the 
1 970s, generally regarded as another 
result of the May 4 shootings, may 
have been even greater had the 
Northeastern Ohio Universities Col- 
lege of Medicine not been created in 
1973. A joint effort of the University 
of Akron, Youngstown State Univer- 
sity and Kent State, the College fea- 
tures a unique six-year program and 
drew many students to the University 
who otherwise would not have at- 
tended Kent. 

Brage Golding became the Univer- 
sity's ninth president in the midst of 
the enrollment decline. During Gold- 
ing's administration, however, enroll- 
ment began to rise again, the Nursing 
Building was constructed and the 
School of Fashion Design and Mer- 
chandising was created, although it 
did not open until 1983. 

A lot can happen in 75 years. 

Today, under the administration of 
President Michael Schwartz, Kent 
State is a thriving university with an 
excellent academic reputation. Its 
continually improving facilities and 
programs set it apart from other uni- 
versities, and make Kent State a dis- 
tinguished member of the academic 
community. ■

The crowning of Eileen l\/lcNamara 
and O.J. Smith as Queen and King 
capped Kent State's 1984 Homecoming 

The ceremony was part of half-time 
activities during the Homecoming foot- 
ball game against Central Michigan. 

Other festivities included the Home- 
coming parade, led by Dick Goddard, 
TV-8 weatherman and 1984 KSU out- 
standing alumni, a cheerleader and 
marching band-sponsored bonfire and a 
Saturday evening Sock Hop. 

Although few students participated in 
Homecoming events — a typical sign of 
the student body's general apathy — 
many alumni attended other events 
such as the brunches and dinners spon- 
sored by various academic depart- 
ments and the annual downtown Okto- 

KSU nearly pulled off what would

have been the biggest upset of the 1 984 
Mid-American Conference football sea- 
son as the Flashes held a late 10-7 lead 
against Central Michigan, the pre-sea- 
son favorites to win the MAC crown; 
although KSU had its three-point lead 
and had possession of the ball with just 
under four minutes left in the game, the 
Flashes' offense could do nothing, and 
the Chippewas regained the football. 

Central Michigan mounted a good 
drive, going 62 yards on eight plays and 
capping it with a two-yard end zone 
plunge by tailback Curtis Adams, put- 
ting the Chippewas ahead 14-10. Mean- 
while, the drive ate up a good portion of 
the time remaining in the game leaving 
KSU with only 52 seconds to mount a

Forty determined KSU bicyclists, form- 
ing eight teams, peddled through 50 laps, 
up Hilltop Drive and over E. Main and S. 
Lincoln streets to complete the second an- 
nual Kent 500 on Sept. 30. They raced for 
a first place prize of $175 and a second 
place prize of $75; sponsoring this year's 
race were Kent Nautilus and Portage Dis- 
tributing of Ravenna. 

One bike of the same make was issued 
per team giving the race an exciting, equal- 
ized nature. The course was very demand- 
ing, calling for coordinated team member 
cyclist changes, individual endurance and 
responsive racing abilities. 

The 50-lap course could be split up a 
number of ways among the five team 
members, but each cyclist had to compete

at least one lap. 

In the few minutes before the begin- 
ning of the race, while other teams loos- 
ened up and made strategies, Ron 
Schwartz, a KSU alumnus, was plan- 
ning to race as the sole person on his 
"team", but hastily complied with the 
rules and found four willing bystanders 
to sign with him — Brad Sherin, Jeff 
Newhouse, Eric Saunder and Mark Ott. 
Schwartz then proceeded to lead his 
newly formed team to victory by con- 
quering 20 of the 50 laps himself. 

Even though the race "wasn't that 
close," the second place team finished 
in the same lap and the third place team 
crossed the line one lap behind. Ott, like 
his teammates, had really come to 
watch and wasn't planning to race that 
day, but he said the experience was 
"well worth it" and the prize money 
would come in handy. 

Another rule change has already been 
made: in future competitions racers 
must wear helmets. This decision was 
made following the race, after a bicy- 
clist, without a helmet, swerved and 
braked to avoid a photographer and 
flew over the handlebars onto the 
street. An ambulance transported the 
injured man to Robinson Memorial Hos- 
pital in Ravenna; the lesson was learned 
that bicyle racing, like many other 
sports, has protective gear for a reason.

One of those bronze medals be- 
longed to a Kent State student, Thomas 
Jefferson, a senior physical education 
major from Cleveland. Jefferson, a vet- 
eran runner with the KSU track team, 
grabbed the bronze Aug. 8 with a time of 
20.26 — a personal best and a KSU re- 
cord — in the 200 meter run. Besides 
Jefferson, the University boasts two 
other Olympians: Jud Logan, a 1981 
graduate of KSU who qualified for the 
U.S. Olympic Team in the hammer 
throw, and Al Schoterman, KSU assis- 
tant track coach and an alternate, also 
in the hammer throw, for the 1984 U.S. 
Olympic Team. 

Jefferson was not listed among the 
favorites to win the race, as Carl Lewis 
and Kirk Baptiste were correctly picked 
to take the gold and silver medals, re- 
spectively. In the eyes of oddsmakers, 
Jefferson was a longshot. 

"Going into the race my thoughts 
were on a United States sweep. It didn't 
matter which medal I got just as long as 
I was a part of the sweep," Jefferson 
said in an interview with KSU's Versus 

After a good start, Jefferson headed 
into the straightaway in second place, 
slightly ahead of Baptiste yet still be- 
hind Lewis. "I kept looking as if I expect- 
ed someone to come up on me. Kirk fi- 
nally did come up on me and that re- 
laxed me more, and as I was running 
down the straightway, I figured I had 
third and I would try to catch Kirk 
again," Jefferson said. "By the time I 
made my adjustment, my coordination 
was thrown off just enough and when I 
saw that I couldn't catch Kirk, I made 
sure I had third." 

Jefferson became the first KSU Olym- 
pic medal winner since Gerald Tinker 
won the gold in the 1972 Munich games 
as part of the 4 X 100 meter U.S. relay 

"The first thing I thought about was 
the sweep — we got it, we finally got it," 
said Jefferson. "The victory lap was 
really special. It gave us a chance to 
share with each other. We were all part 
of something that happened 28 years 
ago (the last U.S. medal sweep in the 
200 meters), which made it even more 

The Olympic magic reaches all the way to Kent 
State as Thomas Jefferson signs his autograph 
for a young fan. 

The United States decided the best way to demonstrate political disfavor with 
the Soviet Union in 1980 would be to boycott the Summer Olympic Games in 

Likewise, this past summer the Soviets, along with most of their allies, staged 
a boycott of their own and pulled out of the 1 984 Summer Games in Los Angeles. 

Without the Russians and other socialist bloc nations the summer competi- 
tion was obviously diluted, although a record number of countries (140) and 
athletes (7,800) were featured in Los Angeles. Indeed, U.S. Olympic fans ap- 
peared to ignore the controversy of the Soviet pullout and instead chose to 
concentrate on the American runaway victory, with U.S. athletes earning 83 gold 
medals, 61 silver medals and 30 bronze medals.

Logan qualified as a member of the 
U.S. Olympic Team at the Olympic Tri- 
als in Los Angeles June 19, 1984 with a 
distance of 237 feet, 9 inches in the 
hammer throw. "It was a great experi- 
ence — the thrill of my life," Logan said

the most rewarding thing that could 
have happened to me in the Games," 
Schoterman said. 

Schoterman compared the 1972 
games to this past summer's competi- 
tion, noting that the Los Angeles Games 
were special to him because they were 
in the United States. "Anything at home 
is much more exhilarating than some-

Lights! Cameras! Ac- 
tion! Another TV-2 pro- 
duction is on the air. 

The girl sits behind the huge 
console, talking into a live 
mike. Needles register in the 
dials around her. She's one of 
70 students working for 
WKSR, the student-run radio station, 
and she's on the air. 

The station gives on-air experience to 
students interested in radio broadcast- 
ing. It is not an academic program, al- 
though telecommunication students 
can receive credit for their work. 

The station is patterned after com- 
mercial radio. There are sales and pub- 
lic relations departments and a promo- 
tions director. With 20 advertising ac- 
counts, up from last year's 10, the 
station is basically self-supporting. 

Campus Communications 


"The students learn from each oth- 
er," says Robert West, faculty adviser. 
"It's peer group teaching. They watch 
and learn. Then they go on the air and 
do it. Nothing can replace that kind of 
real life experience." 

While some telecommunication stu- 
dents work at WKSR, others learn 
about live television at TV-2, the on- 
campus student TV station. The station 
broadcasts two hours of live program- 
ming Monday through Friday. 

The nightly news show is broadcast 
at 5:30 and 6:30, using a different cast 
for each show, to give more students 
TV experience. News classes write the 
scripts, a volunteer crew works the 
cameras, and five students make up 
each show's cast. 

The station also produces "Reflec- 
tions," a popular magazine-style news 
show. It features interviews with cam- 
pus figures, movie reviews, and topics 
which concern students. There's also 
"Family Tree," a show on black history. 

TV-2 gives students valuable hands- 
on experience, says Dr. Gene Stebbins, 
faculty adviser. "It's one thing to prac- 
tice in a lab, and a whole different thing 
producing a live show. I've watched net- 
work news for years, and never once 
have I heard them come on the air and 
say, 'Sorry, folks, we're not ready to do 
the news.' It takes discipline to survive 
in the TV world. Our students learn 
each day what that means."

initiated often find myste- 
rious rocket ships or elec- 
tronic spiders littering 
their copy on the screen. 

Practical jokes abound 
and help to relieve staff 

"The work is very de- 
manding," says Mark 
Price, copy desk chief. "I 
spend 40 hours a week 
here, besides my other 
classes. But it's worth it — 
I'm becoming an excellent 
copy editor." 

Each Tuesday through 
Friday 14,000 copies of 
the Stater are produced. 
Advertising sold by stu- 
dents accounts for three- 
fourths of the $300,000 
annual budget. The re-

"We're one of the best 
college newspapers in the 
country," says faculty ad-

"We're rated 'All Ameri-

us among the best. In pub- 
lishing the Stater, stu-

They're exposing their 
learning to the academic 
community every day." 

Sports Editor Tony Tri- 
gilio agrees. "You take ev- 
erything you learn in the 
classroom and apply it 

"Besides writing and 
learning the mechanics of 
newspaper journalism, 
you deal with people. You 

find out who needs con- 
stant prodding to get sto- 
ries in on time, and who's 
reliable. You develop di- 
plomacy in dealing with 
the public, too. Organiza- 
tions become angry when 
they don't get enough

It was a time to relax, 
learn, and enjoy. At the 
17th Annual Folk Fest, 
artists from all over the 
country met at KSU to 
share their talent with 
others. Above, Les

Folk Fest 

February 25 the Kent State Audito- 
rium was transformed into a cultural 
center as dozens of folk artists from 
around the country converged at KSU 
for the 17th Annual Folk Festival. 

The Festival consisted of a shov\/ and 
several workshops ranging from crafts- 
men to musicians. 

The SVi-hour show, hosted by profes- 
sional emcee Al McKenney, performing 
music from all over the world. The show 
opened with Sally Rogers, a Connecti- 
cut musician who emphasized audience 
participation in her act while accompa- 
nying herself on the harp and guitar. 
Rogers sang songs such as "Zip's Din- 
er," a tune dedicated to the nation's un- 


employed, and once during her act, di- 
vided the audience into four sections 
and led everyone in a Hungarian round. 

Another group, Mary, Tali, and Paul 
Uasi, played Polynesian music as well 
as performing a memorable rendition of 
"Please Release Me" in both Polyne- 
sian and English. 

Daniel Womack, a 79-year old blind 
singer from Roanoke, Va. accompanied 
himself on the piano and guitar. His gos- 
pel jubilee style delighted the audience, 
and his performance w/as highlighted by 
a quartet song in which he sang all four 

The closing act of the evening was 
Alex Udvary, Ernie King, and the Conti- 
nental Strings. The spirited group 
played Romanian, Hungarian, and gyp- 
sy music with a violin and a cimbalom, a 
cross between a xylophone and a pi-

in the team. 

Each aspect of the show — the music, the lighting, the 
choreography — is carefully planned by team members and 
coordinated by their coaches. The result is an impressive 
exhibit of concentration and discipline, muscle and grace. 

Team members work well together, both during the show 
and during competition, because of the close-knit, caring at-

May 4th, 

There are those "who favor the student demonstrators, 
those who empathize with the National Guardsmen involved, 
and those who embrace the political machinery that autho- 
rized the use of force on the KSU campus in May, 1970. The 
tragedy of May 4 is an inescapable aspect of Kent State. 

May 4 generated worldwide publicity for the University, not 
just because of the liberal political climate of the United 
States during the Vietnam era, but because the incident pos- 
sessed a certain significance that has remained throughout 
the last fifteen years. The United States, a country that 
places much value in free speech and the right of dissent, 
silenced on May 4 the very element responsible for its unique 
moral standing among other nations of the world. 

The arguments continue on campus in 1985. Did the stu- 
dents go too far? Was the throwing of rocks at armed enforc- 
ers an act of radical stupidity? Or did the University adminis- 
tration overstep its authority? Was the imposition of martial 
law on campus May 3 an act of rash paranoia? 

Conservatism has swept America in the 1980s. It is no 
longer "in" to be a liberal, as it was in the 1960s and early 
70s. Because of this recent attitude adjustment, a larger 
amount of students than ever before wish to either forget the 
incident entirely, or shift most of the blame from society to the 

The recent arguments concerned the lack of a permanent 
memorial to the slain and wounded students. No one can say 
there are no memorials at KSU, but many have argued that 
the University has no memorial that could withstand genera- 

The Center for Peaceful Change, which offers courses on 
nonviolent methods of conflict resolution, can be seen as one 
of the most important memorials at the University because of 
its method of continuing education. 

However, the CPC is funded by the University, making it 
vulnerable to economic realities — budget cuts and the like — 
which could potentially cause its demise. 

But in January 1985, a 12-member committee appointed in 
March 1984 by KSU President Michael Schwartz approved 
the construction of a permanent physical memorial to May 4. 
The memorial is to be built on the wooded hill behind Taylor 
Hall, and its design is to be decided by a national competition. 

Although a memorial has been, after 1 5 years, finally decid- 
ed upon, the University still needs the awareness the May 4 
Task Force provides. The M4TF was formed in 1975. It annu- 
ally commemorates the incident with a candlelight walk May 
3, culminating in a vigil that lasts until noon May 4. At noon, 
speakers and entertainers offer a program on the commons 
to remember the incident. 

A permanent physical memorial has been established, and 
that itself marks a step in the right direction for the University. 
Perhaps KSU no longer is blaming dead and wounded un- 
armed students for what happened on May 4, 1970. Perhaps 
the University and the city of Kent is finally coming to terms 
with the tragedy.

dr. diana culbertson 

Dr. Diana Culbertson: professor of Eng- 
lish and Dominican nun 

BURR: Do you feel that your secular ca- 
reer conflicts with your religious vows? 

Culbertson: No, my whole view of reli- 
gion is that it must be immersed in the 
world. It may not be a part of the state, 
but it is never separate from society. 

BURR: How do you feel that your reli- 
gious training has affected your teach- 

Culbertson: Well, I see theological impli- 
cations in literary texts. It's fairly com- 
mon to seek out philosophical implica- 

tions, but there's also a theological sub- 
structure — for example, the author's 
view on why we are limited. I try to get 
that across to students. 

BURR: Why do you teach? 

Culbertson: I'm deeply involved in en- 
couraging students to study because 
it's one of the best things they can do 
with their humanity. To go through life 
ignorant is the worst deprivation. Kent 
has a good, scholarly atmosphere. I've 
been able to teach in my specialty here, 
and fortunately have developed it with 
tremendous support from the English 

Jim Fossett 



Mike Zagger: senior, nursing 
BURR: How do you feel about being one 
of few males in a female-dominated 

Zagger: It's really not different from any 
other field. Since there are only six or 
eight men out of about 1 60 students, I'm 
definitely part of a minority. But there 
isn't any hostility between the men and 
women. The only time the women get 
competitive is when one of the guys 
does better on a test or something. 
Then the girls will work even harder to 
do better. 

I've heard from various sources that 

Viv Addicott 

men have a better chance of getting 
hired in the nursing field than women 
do, simply because we're the minority. 
But I don't think that's true. Most of the 
job contacts I've made haven't shown 
favoritism or expressed any preference 
whatsoever about whether I'm male or 
female. Qualifications are what's impor- 
tant, and that's the way it should be. 

BURR: Why did you choose KSU's nurs- 
ing program? 

Zagger: I checked out several schools 
in Northeastern Ohio, and Kent State 
had by far the best nursing school 
around. I heard, in fact, that KSU was 
ranked one of the top nursing schools in 
the nation, and that was more than 
enough to convince me to come here. 

BURR: Do you feel that Kent State of- 
fers the practical experience you'll need 
after you graduate? 

Zagger: Definitely. During their under- 
graduate studies, students are sent to 
work in many excellent area hospitals, 
such as Akron Children's Hospital, 
which is adding a new burn unit to its 
existing facilities. In this way, we're con- 
stantly coming in contact with what's 
happening out in the "real world." 

BURR: Medicine is a highly competitive 
field. What do you think your chances 
are of finding a job once you graduate? 

Zagger: Around here, for example in 
Akron and Ravenna, the job market 
doesn't look good. Hospitals are only 
hiring people for part-time positions, 
which usually only turn into full-time 
jobs if you're willing to stick around and 
wait for an opening. The Cleveland 
area, though, is continually looking bet- 
ter. Facilities are being added, nuclear 
medicine is emerging, and because of 
this jobs are beginning to open up. 
Also, all branches of the military are in- 
terested in recruiting nurses. I'm con- 
sidering entering the service, but if I 
don't, Cleveland will be the first place I'll 
look. With its reputation, it's a great 
place to start a career. 

BURR: What are some of the advan- 
tages of KSU? 

Zagger: I think the Intramurals program 
is great. I've had a lot of fun being in- 
volved in that. I also think Kent's loca- 
tion is a big plus. Basically, it's an hour 
away from everything. I like to visit dif- 
ferent towns to see what they're like, 
and here I'm close to Youngstown, Ak- 
ron, Cleveland ... It gives me all kinds 
of opportunities. 


gerald turk 

Rabbi Gerald Turk: Director, Hillel Jew- 
isli Services Center 
BURR: What does your job at Hillel in- 

Turk: It involves pretty much what I 
make of it. Theoretically I'm here for reli- 
gious purposes, but my job deals with a 
little bit of everything. I can't hit kids 
with the hard religious stuff because 
they won't listen. So, I try to reach them 
in areas that are important to them. For 
instance, with the problems the Soviet 
Jews are having. I want to try to make 
the kids realize that it could have been 
them. It's just chance that we're here in 
America instead. 

I also believe in doing social things. I 
plan coffeehouses, picnics, movies . . . 

anything to make students aware of 
what's going on around them. 
BURR: How would you describe stu- 
dent involvement in Hillel? 
Turk: It's large, but lower than it's been 
in a long time. The problem is that we're 
dealing with the "me" generation. You 
have to really cater to the kids to get 
them to come. Out of about 800 Jewish 
kids on campus, about 200 are involved 
in Hillel. 

BURR: What do you feel you have 
brought to the program since you've 
come to KSU? 

Turk: I can talk to kids. What's more, I 
like to talk to kids. I think this has helped 
to increase student involvement. 

I also established a number of 
courses in the Experimental College 
that provided the base for the continual- 
ly growing Judaic Studies program. 

Mark Rogers 


Dr. Edward Crosby: Director, Pan Afri- 
can Studies Department 
BURR: What is your role in the depart- 

Crosby: I have and always will, primar- 
ily, addressed myself to students. 
Around the Pan African Studies depart- 
ment we are basically a student-based 
operation — a student equality-based 
operation, which tends to make me an 
anathema in that context. If there's any- 
one out here that is on the side of black 
students, it's me, number one, and this 
department number two. I have never 
had problems addressing myself to stu- 

BURR: How do you view your responsi- 
bility as a teacher? 

Crosby: In the days when I first started 
teaching here at Kent State, there was 
an attempt to coot the students out, and 
to pacify them. Then I was constantly 
trying to tell students, "Don't get paci- 
fied. Once something goes onto paper. 

that does not make it real. Something is 
only real when you see it in force. Don't 
go to sleep when somebody writes you 
a letter and says hey, everything is fine. 
No. Everything is not fine. It isn't fine 
until I look at it, critique it and analyze it. 
It isn't until that happens that I can say it 
is fine." 

BURR: Do you feel there is much 
change going on in your department? 
Crosby: Nothing will ever go exactly the 
way I want it to with this department. 
One way to critique an organization is to 
take a look at where it was when it start- 
ed, then take a look at where it is when 
you become aware of it. If any one ele- 
ment of that organization remains stat- 
ic, then you are dealing with a dead or- 
ganization. I, to some degree and to my 
faculty's disdain, am constantly forcing 
in newness. They have to try some- 
times to keep up with me. My initials are 
E.W.C., and one of my faculty members 
interpreted these letters as the Eternal 

dr. edward 

Work Creator. That's O.K. because 
sometimes that's what I feel I have to be 
about. In order to keep dynamism in a 
system, you have to confront the sys- 
tem with newness. 


Chris birt 

Christine Birt: junior, musical theater 
BURR: With all the talk of unemploy- 
ment in your field, why do you want to 
be an actress? 

Birt: There's just something in me that 
makes me want to perform. I suppose I 
could be a business person, but I don't 
feel that's my calling; I just feel at home 
on the stage. I could probably make my- 
self feel at home anywhere I decided to 
put myself, but I don't want to do that. I 
don't want to work a job that's strictly 9- 
to-5, I want something that's going to 
challenge my brain. 
BURR: Is it a job that changes a lot? 
Birt: It changes constantly, and that's 
one of the things I like about acting. You 

have to be very intelligent about what 
you're doing when you are on stage. 
There are some "dummies" in theater, 
but these days, you can't be. The peo- 
ple who are putting on the big shows 
don't want to take any risks, so you al- 
most have to be very well-rounded. 
BURR: When you are on stage, do you 
hide behind your characters? 
Birt: No, I'm not that kind of person. I'm 
pretty much myself, and sometimes 
that gets me into trouble. I just think 
people have to open up themselves 
when they're making a character, and 
that's something I try hard to do. 
BURR: Then how much of your stage 
character is taken from personal experi- 

Peter Phun, Brian Mooar (opposite) 


Birt: That depends on the part I am 
playing. What I do when I make up a 
character is try to think of a person that 
would act the way I'm supposed to act. 
Sometimes I even base my character on 
an animal — a lot of actors do that. 
They go into their roles with a little "se- 
cret" that will help them carry out their 
role. You really have to think out your 
roles, because if you don't, your acting 
becomes very thin and it really shows 
that you haven't done your homework. 
And that's where the challenge is; mak- 
ing a role work is what it's all about. 


Jim Shimko: Fall Editor, the Daily Kent 


BURR: Has everything gone the way 

you expected it to in your semester as 


Shimko: Hell no! It's been a lot harder 

than I ever thought it was going to be. 

It's been hard, not so much in the work 

itself, but in learning how to lead people 

. . . learning how to be the boss, yet still 

stay friends with people. Hopefully, I've 

been able to do that. 

BURR: Have you been able to maintain 
your grades? 

Shimko: (Moans) That's been hard. 
Sometimes I feel like I come here every 
day to put out a paper, not to be a stu- 
dent, and there are times when I have to 
push myself to remember that that's not 
the case. There's a lot of responsibility, 
and sometimes you really feel the heat, 
not so much from other people, but from 
yourself. If it weren't for my friends and 
my staff, I probably would have lost my 

i ^'^ ) IP 

sanity a long time ago. It's really going 
to be hard to leave the Stater — I've 
been through a lot here. 
BURR: If you had your job to do over 
again, what would you have done differ- 

Shimko: I would probably have taken 
more time to plan the Stater right from 
the beginning. That includes how I 
wanted the Stater to look. I would also 
have taken more time to integrate my- 
self into the overall plan of the Stater.

I can't lie, I knew what I was getting 
myself into as Sfafer editor from my ex- 
perience on staff. It's really hard, 
though, to know what's going on behind 
that desk until you're really sitting be- 
hind it. A lot of times I feel detached 
from the everyday news beat. If I don't 
let my staff do their job, then that's a 
reflection on me. I'm there to help ad- 
vise and set the tone, but when it comes 
right down to it, they all have to do their 
jobs. I can't do it for them. 
BURR: So you view your job as an ad- 
ministrative role, rather than an active 

Shimko: I guess you could call it that. I 
have to be the boss, but these people 
really know their jobs. Just by being 
there as a backup, I can set the tone of 
what is going on. An editor could easily 
be out of the office all day, meeting with 
people and talking to groups, but by be- 
ing there, I'm saying, "Hey, I care." 
BURR: On paper, there are a lot of 
fringe benefits associated with the posi- 
tion of Sfafer editor. 
Shimko: Of course, it's good resume 
material, but for me, that's not the most 
important thing. To me, the biggest 
benefit is the people I work with. As a 
matter of fact, I see them more than I 
see my own family. Right now, they are 
my family.

Dr. C. Owen Lovejoy: professor, 

BURR: What brought you here 
to Kent State? 

Lovejoy: My mentor, Olaf Prufer 
(chairman of the department of 
sociology and anthropology) 
came here and I came with him. 
I was hired as a temporary in- 
structor fourteen years ago, 
and I'm still here. 
BURR: Of what accomplish- 
ments are you most proud? 
Lovejoy: My paper on human 
origins, and the students I've 
produced and am producing 

BURR: What do you like best 
about KSU? 

Lovejoy: It's a pleasant place to 
live. Kent's a low-pressure, rea- 
sonably major midwestern uni- 
versity. We have superb stu- 
dents. I'd take one of our stu- 

dents over a Berkeley student 
any day. They (Kent students) 
are more open-minded. 
BURR: If you hadn't been an an- 
thropologist, what would you 
have been? 

Lovejoy: An immunologist. If 
not that, then an automobile en- 
gineer. They all deal with how 
things fit together and how they 

BURR: What do you do in your 
spare time? 

Lovejoy: I do quite a bit of work 
on my car (a gray Alfa Romeo). 
I'm down at the garage so much 
they gave me my own jacket 
with my name on it. I'm also on 
retainer for the Cuyahoga 
County coroner's office. I work 
on the identification of decom- 
posed bodies and footprint and 
shoeprint identification.

Jortn l/Va///n; Head coacrt, KSU hockey 

BURR: What do you think of the student 
body in your first year at KSU? 
Wallin: I think we've got tremendous di- 
versification. I've seen all kinds of stu- 
dents here. Our job as faculty and staff 
is to create the environment for stu- 
dents to be totally dedicated to the Uni- 
versity. And I know, without a doubt, 
that the University is totally dedicated 
to the student body. 
BURR: What do you enjoy the most 
about coaching college hockey? 
Wallin: I love the challenge of helping a 
student athlete grow and develop into a 
man who can make a positive contribu- 
tion to society. That's the first thing that 
I like. The second challenge is being 
prepared to defeat any enemies that 
come in here and try to take away the 
pride of Kent State. 
BURR: Is this year's KSU hockey team 
different from any other team you have 
coached in your career? 
Wallin: Sure. The thing that I see here is 
that these guys have had a great base 
of support from coach Don Lumley 

(Flashes' head coach from 1982-84) 
over the last couple of years. I can see 
the training that he has put into the pro- 
gram, especially his individual work with 
the players. 

BURR: Do you have some sort of 
coaching philosophy? 
Wallin: Here is my hockey coaching phi- 
losophy that we followed this year: de- 
feating the tragic hero with hockey. The 
tragic triad of human existence is guilt 
from our past, pain in the present, and 
death in our future. But where can this 
encounter be solved? Where can pain 
be found on demand? Where can we 
meet guilt head-on and cleanse our- 
selves? Where can we experience 
death, and then return? The best an- 
swer is in hockey. Hockey is a theater 
where a sinner can turn saint and a 
common man become an uncommon 
hero. Hockey is singularly able to give 
us peak experiences where we feel 
completely at one with the world and 
transcend all conflicts as we finally fulfill 
our own potential. Life is just the place 
where we spend time between classes 
and games. 




An Ordinary Day 

Wednesday Oct. 1 0th 

At 4 a.m., the Kent State campus was 
covered with a thick blanl<et of fog. 

No cars, no pedestrians anywhere. 

Just quiet. 

An hour later, things began to stir — 
light by light, the campus began to come 

It was Wednesday, October 10, 1984 
— an ordinary day at KSU. 

Assembled on these pages is an in- 
side look at an ordinary day at Kent 
State as seen through the eyes of 43 
student photographers. The project 
produced nearly 9,000 photographic im- 
ages from nearly 200 rolls of film within 
a 24-hour period. 

From early morning until late evening, 
Burr photographers roamed the cam- 
pus in search of typical scenes, both >h 
the classroom and outdoors. 

Here is what they found.

Although religion has always been important at Kent State, this year saw 
a surge of religious activity. 
Ellen Midlam, a junior music education major, has participated in 
United Christian Ministries, also known as Campus Ministries for three 

UCM is a student organization sponsored by seven area churches and is open 
to all denominations. 


Peter Phun 

"Campus Ministries has given me somewiiere to go," IVIidlam said. "I found tiiere a 
special spiritual growth." 

"It helped me find where I am — they helped me find 'me'." 

Midlam said she was lonely when she first moved into her dormitory until she joined 
other dorm students in prayer sessions and Bible studies. 

"There I found friends who understand how I felt," she said. 

Midlam said UCM has helped her begin her own ministry, "Sermon in Song," with 
which she tours Ohio. 

Cassie Rogers, a junior international relations major, is a member of the UCM mime 
troupe and also tours the state. 

Rogers said she is not very religious — she joined UCXM "just to mime." 

"UCM Mime does more social statements, more messages," Rogers said. "The skits 
are more controversial than a theater mime troupe, and I like that." 

"I like to shake people up a little." 


Lisa McNeil, a sophomore nursing major, is a member of 
the Campus Crusade for Christ. 

"Campus Crusade is a great group," McNeil said. "But the 
thing that makes the difference is not the group but Jesus 
Christ, and your personal relationship with Jesus Christ." 

"Jesus Christ really gives purpose to my life." 

McNeil said she participates in Campus Crusade for fellow- 
ship and discipleship. 

"There I can spend time with people who live life day-to- 
day with Jesus Christ, not just Sunday," she said. 

She added that Campus Crusades also trains students to 
be evangelists. 

"They teach us how to talk to friends about Jesus Christ 
without banging them over the head with it." 

But Christians are not the only religious students on cam- 
pus. Robin Jacobs, a sophomore, wants to be a rabbi. 

She said the programs at Hillel, an organization for KSU's 
Jewish students, helped her make her decision. 

"There are not many organizations on campus to bring 
Jewish students together," she said. "Hillel services . . . have 
played a large role in my life." 

Jacobs said Hillel offers different programs throughout the 
year in addition to regular weekly services. 

Although Jacobs said she does not have much interest in 
the programs of other religions, she has noticed an increase 
in Christian programming.

Religion plays a very important role 
in the lives of many Kent State stu- 
dents. Here Rev. Tom Eisvtrorth from

For many, it's what they do every weekend. It's the 
elusive dream of 18-year-olds who have no ID, 
and the routine of hardened veterans who have 
been through the weekend wars. 
It's going downtown — visiting the strip of bars 
that lie on Franklin Avenue and the immediate area. They 
rest conveniently in a row, and they avidly compete for 
student attention with bands and drink specials. 

But bars and clubs compete in more than the obvious 
ways, such as the atmosphere they establish and the clien- 
tele they attract. For all of the obvious inducements places 
offer, some frequent the same places weekend after week- 
end, while others continue to "make the circuit" in their 
search for the perfect bar. 

Why? What is that mysterious something that the down- 
town area lacks? 
Does Kent need a new bar? 

"Yes," said Laura Kowalski, a senior psychology/politi- 
cal science major. 
"No," said Kathy Latta, a junior interior design major. 

"Uhhhhh . . . okay. Why? 

Kowalski pauses and reflects, "It's not that I'm upset by 
the places that are here now. These places play OK music 
and they're not too pretentious. But if I could have my ideal 
bar, I would have it play Motown and the Beatles and 60s 
music. My friends and I have talked about this a lot." 

But Latta said, "It's no big deal where we go. Wherever 
my friends and I are, we're gonna have a good time." 

Larry Joseph, a senior computer and management sci- 
ence major, said he and his roommates stop "just about 
everywhere" when they go downtown. Of the bars in Kent, 
he likes different ones for different reasons. 

"The Loft is good, because it's laid-back, you can usual- 
ly get a table, and lots of people I know hang out there. But 
Ray's has a good selection of beer, and it's one big room 
with lots going on. 

"But as far as a new bar, yeah, it would be nice. None, 
well, few of the bars in Kent are really nice. You go to bars 
in other places and they have really good tables. They're 

Live entertainment from 
bluegrass to jazz is a major 
attraction to Kent's down- 
town scene.

Some enjoy the atmosphere of the bar scene, while 
others prefer to do their partying outside. 


Left, Carl Eichhorn shares a 
drink with his admirers at the 

just classier. As far as music, I'd say it should have a good 
mix, maybe a DJ — a little of everything on the jukebox," 
Joseph said. 

Senior theater major Mark Polcyn agreed. "A new place 
would need to be very well taken care of. It needs to be a 
place where you would feel intimidated about trashing it. 
Right now, I don't think there's a place like that. I mean 
something that's more quiet and reserved — a place you 
could take a date," he said. 

"Most bars either attract the new wavers, a middle 
group, or a ritzy group," said Don Cuddy, a senior educa- 
tion major. "Kent needs a place that would attract all types 
— a populist approach." 

Senior Joanne Litwack, a telecommunications major, 
added, "Kent needs one that's bigger, with a big place to 
dance. I like going to bars where you can be yourself and 
not worry about dressing up to get all smoky," she said. 

Swell. Anything we left out? 

"No heavy metal," said Kowalski. 

"Anything but heavy metal," said Joseph. 

"No hanging ferns," said Polcyn. 

"And nicer bathrooms," added Joseph. 

But not everyone feels that Kent bars need redesigning. 
Jim Pleshinger, a junior journalism major, said, "Kent 
doesn't need a new bar, although it sometimes seems we 
could use one. I'm not especially wild about the trendier, 
dressier places with mirrors, glass and 42 video screens. 
You need to feel comfortable when you go downtown, and 
if I could design a new bar, that's what I would gear it to." 

Hyllori Leshman, a junior recreation major, felt the same 
way. "A new bar? No. I don't think we need the ones we 
have. But we could use something new, like a TGIFriday's: 
dancing, good food — a young adult kind of place. A little 
dressier," she said. 

"You don't really need to make a lot of changes," said 
junior Mike Fender. "Our bars are a lot like the ones in 
other towns. The Kent bar scene is not bad, not at all."

Campaign '84 

Every four years the nation 
holds its public officials up to 
the light. On election day the 
people become the boss — 
an old cliche, but accurate. And, on 
election day 1984, incumbent Ronald 
Reagan won the overwhelming ap- 
proval of his employers. 

During the campaign, many people 
felt the president would win. He was 
charismatic and well-liked. What they 
didn't know was by how large a mar- 
gin. The president won about 60 per- 
cent of the popular vote in his race 
against Democratic challenger Wal- 
ter Mondale, but more importantly, 
the president carried 525 of the 538 
electoral votes — one of the biggest 
electoral landslides in the history of 
the presidency. 

All through the campaign, the 
president preached his ideals of a 
strong America — one that could 
withstand the attacks of internal eco- 
nomic repression as well as dealing 
with the Soviet Union in forceful 
terms. Obviously, the American peo- 
ple liked what they heard. 

And while the president pulled 
more and more votes to the Republi- 
can camp during the months of the 
campaign, the Democrats battled 
dissention within their ranks in trying 
to decide who would have the task of 
trying to unseat the president. Eight 
candidates — including Ohio Sen. 
John Glenn — were on the nation's 
first primary ticket (New Hampshire) 
in February. Some politically active 
Kent State students with a desire to 
help get the Glenn campaign off the 
ground traveled to Concord, N.H., 
and spent almost a week there hand- 
ing out leaflets and manning precinct 
voting headquarters. The Glenn ef-

They ran an admirable 
campaign, but it 
wasn't enough to 
boost Democratic 
presidential candidate 
Walter Mondale and 
his running mate, Ger- 
aldlne Ferraro, to vic- 

fort, however, stalled early, and the 
senator pulled out of the race after 
the "Super Tuesday" election. 

The struggle for Democratic su- 
premacy was finally settled in San 
Francisco at the party's national con- 
vention. Former Vice President Wal- 
ter Mondale edged out Colorado 
Sen. Gary Hart for the nomination. 

Although the Democrats could not 
stand up to the Reagan political ma- 
chine, they did accomplish two 
American firsts. The Rev. Jesse 
Jackson, the first black to make a se- 
rious run at a major party nomina- 
tion, stayed in the race until the end 
and made a good showing. Also, 
Democratic vice presidential nomi- 

nee Geraldine Ferraro became the 
first woman to run on a major party's 
ticket. If the Democrats did nothing 
else, they broke down race and sex 
barriers in the American political sys- 
tem like no one had before. And the 
Republicans proved just how popular 
Ronald Reagan is in America.

thing, and they were. There were 
strapping young lads dolled up in 
their girlfriends' best dresses, and 
delightful lasses decked out in gang- 
ster suits. No ghost was safe this 
night as fully three squads of Ghost- 
busters were on patrol, compliment- 
ed by an auxiliary Beerbuster squad, 
proclaiming that "they weren't 'fraid 
of no beer!". Dandies, pirates and 
bucklers of the swash fenced in the 
street and courted damsels on the 
sidewalk. The strangest thing of all, 
though, was the parents who 
brought their children out to see this 
freak show. 

Crazies abounded and all enjoyed 
themselves that night, a living testi- 
mony to the fact that Halloween is 
Kent's most glorious holiday. 
Pete Coogan 

Halloween. Mere mention of this 
holiday conjures up thoughts of ter- 
ror-filled faces peering out of dark- 
ened windows, nasty beasties and 
ghouls and goblins haunting desert- 
ed neighborhoods and towns. This 
may be the case in far and foreign 
lands, but not at KSU. In Kent All Hal- 
lows Eve is synonymous with fun, 
and Halloween '84 was no exception. 

The evening started with a few pri- 
vate parties spread inconspicuously 
throughout the city. Guests and other 
assorted personages filled the 
porches and houses to overflowing. 
Gangs and groups attended the 
bashes en masse. The revered holy 
man, Gandhi, was seen at one gath- 
ering. He was followed shortly after- 
ward by an all-female six-pack of Lite 
Beer from Miller, accompanied by an 
all-male six of Bud. The females were 
then given the ovum treatment by a 
band of wandering sperm on their 
way to the downtown festivities. 

Downtown Kent was a most mar- 
velous place this night, due to a com- 
mingling of all age and social groups. 
Kent's spirit of mild intolerance was 
replaced by an inebriated accep- 
tance of all. Anyone could be any-

The Kent State football team had an 
unusual season in 1984, divided into 
three sections: a four-game losing 
streak, a three-game winning streak 
and a three-game losing streak. 

Dick Scesniak led the Golden Flashes 
into the season with only one goal — to 
improve — even if that meant a 1-9-1 
record, half a game better than his inau- 
gural season as KSU's head coach. 

Since the Flashes' only accomplish- 
ment in 1983 was extinguishing a 21- 
game losing streak, the longest in the 
nation at the time, expectations of more 
than a pair of wins seemed a bit high for 
the 1984 edition of Kent State football. 

KSU equaled its 1983 win total in its 
first game when sophomore tailback 
Derrick Nix led the team to a 24-17 vic- 
tory over the University of Akron with a 
career-high 110 yards rushing. 

The Flashes journeyed to Lexington, 
Ky. to take on the Kentucky Wildcats of 
the powerful Southeastern Conference. 
The Cats were too much for the 
Flashes, however, and produced an of- 

The Flashes ended their losing streak 
when they beat the Ball State Cardinals 
15-10. Senior kicker-punter Tony De- 
Leone received much of the credit for 
the victory with his kicking. DeLeone 
finished his career with the NCAA re- 
cord for most consecutive and career 
punts without having one blocked. 

Two KSU wide receivers concluded 
their careers in 1984 by setting all-time 
records. Flanker Todd Feldman caught 
a 23-yard pass in the Bowling Green 
game to finish with 1,663 yards receiv- 
ing, one more yard than Kim Featsent's 
previous mark.

fensive outburst that ended in a 42-0 
loss for KSU. 

The Flashes couldn't rebound from 
the trouncing they received in Kentucky 
and lost their next game to defending 
conference champion Northern Illinois. 
The 24-1 defeat was a lackluster affair 
that got mired in torrential rain.

Ice Hockey 

Kent State's ice hockey program 
has been constantly changing 
since its beginnings as a club 
sport in 1970, and the 1984-85 season 
was no exception. 

The Flashes, who had been coached 
the previous two years by Don Lumley, 
had to adapt once again to a new 

coach, John Wallin, named head coach 
and director of the Kent State Ice 
Arena Aug. 1, 1984. 

Lumley left the team to accept a po- 
sition as assistant director of KSU 
Physical Plant Services. 

Wallin came to KSU from the Cana- 
dian/American Hockey Group, where 

he had been operations director since 
1979. He also had been a part-time 
scout since 1982 for the Calgary 
Flames of the National Hockey 

Wallin gained collegiate coaching ex- 
perience at Chicago State, where he 
compiled a 53-1 6-5 record over a two-

year period. 

In his first season with KSU, Wallin's 
Flashes finished with an 11-14-2 
record. The team finished the season 
winning the KSU/Pepsi Invitational 

The Flashes captured the tourna- 
ment title by defeating SUNY-Buffalo in

An overstatement of the suc- 
cess of this year's team? 


Led by the seniors Anthony 
Grier and Larry Bobbins, the 
Flashes finished the year with a 
17-13 record under third-year 
coach Jim McDonald. That re- 
cord, however, is only the tip of 
the iceberg when the real story 
begins to unfold. 

A first-ever trip to national 
post-season tournament play, a 
third-place conference finish, 
and the most wins in 35 years 
are just the backbone of this 
team's accomplishments. 

Despite a 77-61 loss to Cin- 
cinnati in the first round of the 
National Invitation Tournament, 
Kent State stepped out from 
under the shell which Kent's 
program has remained in since 
its inception. 

It was high time for the 
Flashes to earn the respect of 
their peers in the traditionally 
powerful Midwest. A long-suf- 
fering program before McDon- 
ald's 1982 debut, KSU has 
slowly reversed its losing trend 
and has put together three con- 
secutive winning seasons. 

Strong efforts by both Grier 
and Bobbins were essential to 
the team's success. Only losing 
one senior from last year's team 
promised a strong team for this 
year, but detractor's of the 
Flashes were skeptical that 
KSU could find a spot at the top 
of the MAC. Still, the team's po- 
tential was there for an out- 
standing season. 

And the Flashes certainly 
reached that potential.

tie with Toledo, whose 1 0-6 re- 
cord matched Kent's, had some

The 1984-85 edition of the Kent State wrestling team 
completed a successful season in which the team com- 
piled a 16-6 record and finished second in the Mid- 
American Conference championships. 

During the regular season, Kent State posted impressive 
wins over Defiance College, Edinboro State and Big Ten pow- 
er Ohio State. 

The Flashes recorded a fine 5-1 record in the MAC during 
the season. The team's five conference victories included a 
34-9 win over defending MAC champion Miami on KSU Wres- 
tling Alumni Day. 

Instrumental in leading the Flashes to their fine perfor- 
mances were seniors Doug Dake, Ed DiFeo and Rick Wilson, 
along with junior Don Horning. Horning, Dake and DiFeo each 
garnered an NCAA championship berth. 

Horning took championships in two pre-season tourna- 
ments at 118 pounds. He also captured the MAC champion- 
ship and was ranked in the top five wrestlers in the nation 
much of the season. In the NCAAs Horning finished third at 
118 and was named All-American. 

Dake, the defending MAC champion at 177 pounds, fin- 
ished second in the conference this season after being upset 
by Northern Illinois' John Major. Like Horning, Dake spent the 
season ranked among the nation's top ten wrestlers in his 
weight class. At the NCAAs Dake finished seventh and was 
also named an All-American. 

DiFeo compiled a fine record for the Flashes with more than

The Kent State Lady Flashes began the sea- 
son with an inexperienced roster. They wel- 
comed back three juniors and three sopho- 
mores from the 1 983-84 team that went 5-22 over- 
all and 4-14 in the Mid-American Conference. 
Added to this nucleus were six freshmen and one 

KSU began the season with a 64-54 loss to 
Youngstown State, but won its next two games 
over Cleveland State and Xavier. The Lady 
Flashes had a 4-5 record when they began confer- 
ence play against Bowling Green. 

The Lady Flashes lost eight of their first ten 
MAC games, defeating Eastern Michigan on Jan. 5 
and Ball State, on the road, Jan. 19. 

But KSU coach Laurel Wartluft began shuffling 
the line-up, mixing in the freshmen with the veter- 
ans. The result was a 4-4 record in the team's final 
eight games. The last two losses, to Miami and 
Central Michigan, were by a combined total of four 

The Lady Flashes ended the season by rallying 
from a 17 point deficit to defeat Bowling Green 67- 
65 in overtime. The loss kept Bowling Green out of 
the MAC tournament. 

KSU ended the season with an overall record of 
10-17 and 6-12 in the MAC. 

Sophomore Judi Dum, 1984 freshman of the 
year in the MAC, led the team with a 13.6 scoring 
average. She averaged over 20 points in the last 
eight games when the Lady Flashes began their 

Junior Amy Schuler proved to be another cata- 
lyst of the team, averaging 1 1 .1 points a game and 
dishing out 73 assists during the season. 

Perhaps the most pleasant surprise of the sea- 
son was Jennifer Grandstaff. After averaging 10 
points and starting all 27 games (the only other 
KSU player to do this was Dum), Grandstaff was 
selected as MAC freshman of the year. 

With Dum and Grandstaff each being honored 
as freshman of the year the last two seasons, KSU 
became the first school in MAC women's basket- 
ball history to have two players from the same 
team achieve this award in consecutive seasons.

A combination of grit, determination and concen- 
tration helped the Lady Flashes to win twice as 
many games this season as last.

The Kent State men's and wom-

KSU's women closed out the home 
season on March 8 with their finest 
performance of the year. 

The Lady Flashes compiled a sea-

was only .65 of a point shy of the record 
of 175.5, which was established in

On March 16, the KSU men conclud- 
ed their competitive schedule with a 
first place finish at the Eastern Colle- 
giate Invitational. The win marked the 
fourth successive year the Flashes 
have prevailed in the meet.

distinction of ranking first in the nation 
on the floor exercise, with an outstand-

championships, as he did in 1983. He

The Kent State men's indoor 
track team had to manipulate 
its thin roster to fill such non- 
standard events as the open 
300, 500, 600 and 1000-meter events, 
and the 3200-meter relay. As a result, 
KSU posed only a minor threat in these 
areas, and the Flashes enjoyed little 
success during the indoor season. 

The team fared better in the outdoor 
season, though, as the unorthodox in- 
door events were replaced by standard 
events including the 100 and 200-meter 
dashes and the 400 and 1 600-meter re- 

Inconsistency v\/as one of the biggest 
problems the Flashes faced during the 
outdoor season. The field and short 
sprint men carried the team during most 
of the meets while the squad's only oth- 

er noticeable consistency was in the 
weight area. 

Two standouts among the KSU 
weightmen were Senior Matt Lewis and 
Junior Joe Napoli, both shot putters. Ju- 
niors Thomas Jefferson, Olympic 
bronze medalist, and Lloyd Richardson 
led the KSU runners, along with Senior 
Mike McGruder. 

The Kent State women's track team 
performed better during the outdoor 
season than during the indoor season 
as the Lady Flashes faced the same 
problem their male counterparts did — 
a thin roster unable to function competi- 
tively in the non-standard indoor 

The outdoor season could not have 
started any better for the Lady Flashes, 
however. KSU opened the season with 
a victory in the Early Bird Relays in Hun- 
tington, W. Va. The squad scored 61 
points, topping the nine-team field, 
while their closest opposition, second 
place Ashland College and third place 
Marshall College, finished far behind 

with 46 and 38 points, respectively. 

Despite this victory, the Lady Flashes 
were plagued by inconsistency and nev- 
er seemed able to equal their initial suc- 
cess. Freshman Colleen Connolly, 
Sophomore Jodi Riedel and Junior Sue 
Fitzgerald led the team's field unit 
throughout the season while Senior Co- 
Captain Rose Johnson was one of the 
most reliable runners on the outdoor

In his first sea- 
son as head 
coach of the 
KSU baseball 
team, Bob 
Todd managed to 
stay on the win- 
ning end of a 24- 
20 season. It was 
a far cry from 
1983, the most 
successful season 
in Flash baseball 
history, but many 
of the players 
didn't seem wor- 

"Coach Todd 
taught me more 
about the entire 
game than anyone 
else ever has," 
first baseman Ja- 
mie Stehlin said 
after the season.

eluded series wins against such top 
Mid-American conference teams as 
Miami and Western Michigan. The 
Flashes ended the season with 11 
MAC wins, setting a new team record 
for conference victories. 

According to Todd, Kent State had been playing below its poten- 
tial for a number of years. He wanted a change for his team. 

"For years, the baseball program wasn't winning, so they 
dropped the schedule — playing lower division schools to build up 
the team's spirit, " Todd said. "This year, we started tougher, higher 
division teams. It helped us a great deal." 

In keeping with his coaching philosophy, Todd sees bigger and 
better things on the horizon for the Kent State baseball team. But 
the first priority is rebuilding. 

"The Big Eight conference is one of the most competitive confer- 
ences in the country — Kent State can, and will, play baseball at the 
level of the Big Eight in the future," Todd said. 

Despite the boost KSU received from playing tougher competi- 
tion in 1984, an 11 -game mid-season losing streak had a dismal 
effect on the ball club. "Of the 1 1 in a row that we lost, eight were in 
the MAC. We finished just three games out of second place in the 
conference (with an 11-14 record), so if any of those games would 
have turned around, we would have placed second," Todd said. 

In their first season 
under new head coach 
Bob Todd, the Golden 
Flashes finished the 
season with 1 1 confer- 
ence wins, setting a 
new team record.

The 1984 Softball season was 
one of potential, just as it 
was a season of lost chances 
for the Kent State softball 

The Lady Flashes, under the direc- 
tion of head coach Lori Fuglestad, 
ended their season with a 19-22 re- 
cord. A number of the games lost by 
the team were decided by only one 
run, including one game which lasted 
for 27 innings. 

According to Fuglestad, the team's 
talent exceeded its performance dur- 
ing the 1984 season. 

"We really played sub-par consid- 
ering the talent that we had on the 
team this year," Fuglestad said. "In 
critical situations, they (the players) 
didn't fill their responsibilities, and 
sometimes our players just put too 
much pressure on themselves. It was 
hard and frustrating — sometimes 
we just defeated ourselves." 

Throughout the season, the Lady 
Flashes struggled to balance a 
strong defense with a weak offense. 
Although the team batting average 
was only .225, KSU managed to fin- 
ish the season with a .950 fielding 
percentage, with the pitchers posting 
a 1.11 ERA. 

"The players will have a little more 
experience next year," Fuglestad 
promised. "The players we have will 
have been playing under me for two, 
three, or four years, and we're not 
going to have many players graduat- 
ing. We'll be much 
improved — soft- 
ball from the high 
school level to the 
college level is 
completely differ- 
ent, and it takes 
time for players to 
gain confidence."

showing in the 1984 
season, the Lady

In 1984, the Lady Flashes rolled 
through a challenging and competitive 
schedule on their way to a 13-7-1 finish 
and, for the first time in head coach Lori 
Fuglestad's tenure, KSU qualified for 
the MAC championships. 

Although the team did not advance 
past the semi-finals, merely making it to 
the championships at Ball State ended 
the season on a positive note. 

The season began with a bang, as the 
Lady Flashes opened the season with 
two shutouts. By the end of September, 
following their first-ever win over Ohio 
State, Kent State's record stood at 6-3. 

October saw the opening of the con- 
ference season, and the Lady Flashes 
fought their way to the top of the MAC 
as they won two matches, and dropped

on a high note, the Lady Flashes fought 
narrowly squeaked by a succession of 
opponents, including Toledo, to clinch a 
coveted playoff berth. It was their 5-2 
league standing that boosted the Lady

place, as they finished October with a

This year was the "best women's 
season ever," according to head 
swimming coach Greg Oberlin. 

The 800 freestyle relay, comprised of 
sophomores Brenda Bury and Martha 
Curley and freshmen Kathy Kropf and 
Lauren Neft, placed first in the Mid-Ameri- 
can Conference with a record-breaking 
time of 7:43.56. In addition, the women 
broke nine school records and posted a 
fifth place conference finish which, Oberlin 
commented, was the team's "best confer-

"Winning made coaching this season's 
women a lot of fun," he added.

What do you do on a boring 
Wednesday afternoon at 
Kent State University? You 
play Softball. That is if you 
don't mind a short walk to 
Allerton Fields, lots of fresh air and the 
camaraderie of other teammates all trying 
to win the big one. 

Although the participation level for intra- 
mural Softball decreased this year, softball 
still remained the second most popular in- 
tramural sport on campus. Over 1850 stu- 
dents, faculty and staff took part in the fall 
semester softball tournament. 

The 144 teams played a three-game 
round robin schedule for the regular sea- 
son. The season was followed by a single 
elimination championship tournament. 

This year's big winner in the Super 8 
Tournament was the Alabama Slammers, 
while the women's tournament was won 
by the big machine from New Front, The 
Prentice Powerhouse. 

Winona Vannoy, director of intramurals, 
said she was surprised to see this year's 
slight drop in intramural participation. 

"The reasons for people to participate in 
intramural sports range from fitness, to 
competitiveness, to social reasons," Van- 

noy explained. "For this reason we may 
have lost a few players to other intramural 

Overall, Vannoy felt that the intramural

Everyone who has experienced a 
winter at Kent State knows that they 
can be cold and physically limiting. 
Responding to this need for exercise 
and fun in the winter months, the in- 
tramural department created basket- 
ball-for-the-masses. And the masses 
turned out this winter. 

Over 1,500 people participated in 
intramural basketball this year, and 
the number of teams grew to 162. 
These teams were separated into six 
divisions, including the A league, the 
B league, the Women's league, the 
Co-Rec league, the KSU league, and 
the Faculty-Graduate-Staff (FGS) 

Winners of the A league were 
Chocolate City, while Tucker's Tip- 
pers won the B league. Taking the 
honors for the women's league was 
14-Carat Gold. It's Casual won the 
Co-Rec league, and the Porphyb- 
lasts took the FGS league. 

This year a three-on-three tourna- 
ment was held, as well as a one-on- 
one tournament. Many players be- 
came involved in these tournaments 
instead of the team competition, 
which may explain a decrease in 
team participation.

Sometimes a volleyball win is only a hop, skip and jump away. 

Intramural volleyball continued to enjoy its in- 
crease in campus popularity during the 1984-85 
school year. Over 1 20 teams participated in the fall 
and spring versions of the sport. 

The teams that participated this year were clas- 
sified into three categories: the women's division, 
the Co-Rec division, and the Co-Rec power divi- 

Fourty-four teams participated in the fall version 
of volleyball. The women's division winner was the 
Court Dusters. The Coral Reefers claimed the title 

in the Co-Rec division, and the Co-Rec power divi- 
sion was won by the Peace. 

Winona Vannoy, director of intramurals, said, "I 
was pleased with the participation level we 
achieved this year. Volleyball is becoming one of 
our most popular sports." 

Volleyball's increasing popularity on campus be- 
came evident this year as over 1 ,350 people par- 
ticipated. Once again, the intramural department 
served up a winner of a sport.

Even volleyball can involve hand-to-hand combat at times. 
This year more people than ever tried their hands at intramural 
volleyball, as the participation level passed 1,350. 




Intramural football continued to be 
the third most popular intramural sport 
this fall as over 1250 students, faculty 
and staff turned out to play with the 

Intramural football fielded 96 teams 
this year, with an average of 13 people 
per team. The teams were divided into 
four divisions, including the popular 
dorm and independent leagues. Teams 
also participated in the women's league 
and the KSU league, which demonstrat- 
ed the highest level of talent, according 
to Winona Vannoy, director of intramur- 
als and campus recreation. 

Vannoy explained that each team 
played a three-game regular season, 
using a round robin schedule, followed 
by a two-week single elimination cham- 
pionship tournament.

The winners in tills year's tournament 
were Inner Circle in the dorm league, Phi 
lappa Kegga in the independent league 
and Duffy II in the women's league. Ab- 
sent from this year's league roster were 
the fraternities, who won last year's 
tournament. Vannoy said the fraterni- 
ties failed to sign up in time to play. 

Vannoy expressed satisfaction with 
the results of this year's season. She 
said that Kent State intramural partici- 
pation, which averages 50 percent, was 
above the national average.

not a must for everyone, but for those 
who participate, nothing can compare 
with feeling mud, sweat and victory all

Verder hall, coed 
home for hundreds of 
F & PA majors, is far 
from what you would 
call a normal dorm. 
Creativity thrives in 
every facet of Verder 
life from the late night 
architects to the 
weekend partiers. To 
better help its resi- 
dents, Verder is 
equipped with both 
photographic and ar- 
chitectural studios, as 
well as a musical and 
graphic design studio.

the promise of new be- 
ginnings as the gradu-

idealistic, but every 
student was proud of
